land harps (artist talk)

landharps_instruments

I will be giving an artist talk about my recent project Land Harps on Thursday, November 13th at 7pm. I would like to invite you to attend if you are interested in hearing more about the project and its process. It would be good timing as well since the Rochester Art Center is free on Thursdays. The exhibition is on view now through December 7th, 2014.

The Land Harps project revolves around sculptures that enable the landscape to create sound compositions. Originating from pictorial ideas cultivated in drawings and paintings, the project has always been simultaneously thought of as an installation as well as an instrument. Secured to a sturdy form in the landscape, the walnut body of the instrument is outfitted with tuning machines and an internal piezo contact microphone. Piano wire is strung from the body of the instrument and secured to the bottom of a creek bed where the current of the water vibrates the strings at different pitches depending on the line tension, speed of the water and if anything happens to come in contact with the wires. As recordings progress, the current of the creek gradually alters the tuning of the instrument, producing subtle variations in tone and results in an overall composition. The resulting work is a contemplation within the constant flux of landscape, a study of its pacing and intervals.

Opening reception: Friday, October 17 | 7 – 9 pm
Artist talk: Thursday, November 13 | 7 pm

Art Sale: the weekend before Thanksgiving
Now in its 13th year, the MCAD Art Sale is a Minnesota tradition annually held the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Eye-catching, one-of-a-kind art created by MCAD students and recent graduates at unbeatable prices. Thousands of pieces. Every piece less than $1000. Average price less than $100.

New for 2010: more times, more art
The Art Sale has expanded with an additional evening and more access to work from in-demand artists.

Postcards From the Edge is a Visual AIDS benefit show and sale of original, postcard-sized works on paper by established and emerging artists. All works are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The works are signed on the back and exhibited so the artists’ signatures cannot be seen. While buyers receive a list of all participating artists, they don’t know who created which piece until purchased. All proceeds support the work of Visual AIDS.

Visual AIDS utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists, and preserving the legacy — because AIDS IS NOT OVER!
